to keep their health insurance, yes, you can. and the following 3 1/2 years, mr. obama and administration officials repeated this promise. so many times that the white house website, white now has 102,000 matches for the words, quote, you can keep your insurance, unquote. this week, president obama went to boston on the same day health and human services secretary appeared on capitol hill. the obama mission, a 9/11 emergency rescue of obama care after its disastrous october rollout. the tactic, defend and attack. broke out concerning 10 million americans who have health coverage under individual or small group plans. they are getting notice from insurance companies that obama care regulations mean that when it comes to keeping their current plans, no, they can't. white house spokesman is already elastsizing, adding a triple x sized caveat. the canceled plans were substandard and the new mandatory often costlier plans will be better. once the exchange website works, that is. the secretary apologized for the faulty website, but not the mass cancellation. house energy and commerce

that won the white house the year before. with president obama's re- election last year, cuccinelli is hoping that tradition continues. the g.o.p. firebrand was elected virginia's attorney general by 15 points in 2009. in that role, he has challenged the obama administration over health care and environmental regulation. and that's a theme he's continued to play up throughout the campaign. >> i'm kind of glad the president is coming to campaign for my opponent. let there be no lack of clarity as we get to next tuesday. send them a message! >> reporter: it's a tactic cuccinelli also has used on television, where he's tried to tie his opponent to the health care law. >> terry mcauliffe: expand obamacare, increase taxes. ken cuccinelli: create jobs, cut taxes. to stop obamacare and higher taxes, there's only one choice. >> reporter: unlike his rival, mcauliffe supports expanding medicaid under the affordable care act. he says accepting the federal aid would help more virginia residents obtain coverage and benefit the state's economy. >> when we know that 400,000 virginians could gain h
forward four years. what barack obama needed in 2008, isn't what he needed in 2012. i think that's inevitably true with presidents. i think it's why you always see the phenomenon of they think about the possibility of changing the v.p. and decide not to. >> i think it looks bad to dump a guy. the times report that the game change authors obtained a memo from governor chris christie's vetting process to be vice president. quote, according to a memo on christie from the vetting team, it had unanswered questions from early in his political career on a securities and exchange commission settlement involving mr. christie's brother. on names and documentation of his household help, and on his medical sister. the dossier was littered with potential land mines. we haven't seen the book yet, but this raises a question. meanwhile mitt romney had another issue with the governor. that would be chris christie's weight. romney marvelled at christie's girth, his difficulties in making his way down the narrow aisle of the campaign bus. watching a video of christie without his suit jacket on romn
, the public learned that for at least the past three years the obama administration millions ofat americans will not be able to keep their health care plans. but the president has continued to promise repeatedly that if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period. tell that's over 300,000 people in florida who have received theellation notices, or nearly one million californians that may see their health care insurance plans disappear. tell that to the tens of thousands of hoosiers in my state that will see similar notices arriving in their mailboxes. this is about more than just a website. it will take more than an infomercial from the president to fix this. the failure of obamacare's launch is just the tip of the iceberg, and unless we act americans will be stuck on board the titanic. this is why republicans are going to keep fighting to protect consumers from the consequences of the health care law. despite all the problems, warning signs, and broken promises, the president and senate democrats have decided to use it with obamacare and continue
that conservatives have been lying about obama care for three years? >> what are you talking about? [ multiple voices ] >> you don't have to answer that question. it's not the rick ungar show. let me tell you why what you said is false. i will go to page 34,552. i almost sound -- where is betsy? she has the whole health care plan there. i sound like her. >> i have it here. >> the register of the federal government predicted in july of 2010 that 66% of all small employer plans will go away. you can't keep your small employer. 45% of large employer plans will go away. we now know 16 of the 19 million individual plan wills go away. forbes magazine did the math. it's 93 million americans. 93 -- am i right? >> yes. don't forget to add the many, many seen kwors, millions of seniors many medicare advantage plans who received letters telling them they are losing their doctor because of the obama care cuts to the medicare advantage plans dropping specialists that seriously ill patients depend on. >> i have a small business. i lost my plan. i had five options to look at. all five are worse than the option i ha
what projects have been pulled. a couple has been years ago, under president obama's first administration there had been a big stimulus effort to do broadband funding, and stimulus funding for broadband support. what we have seen as a number of those projects either aren't going to get done, or a lot of folks have turned the project back because it is a partnership, and they can't be sure they can return their portion of the annulus invest -- stimulus investment. that is really a shame. one thing we found is every dollar that goes in the ground for broadband has a multiplier effect in terms of the local economy. not even necessarily so much in the rural area. the economic boost actually goes to the urban areas. >> surely that could not have been the fcc intent, to slow down broadband buildout. rules't they argue the have eliminated waste in some areas, allowing companies to more efficiently put up broadband? >> i hear where you're coming from, and i think the universal service system is actually a very complicated network. a lot of different rules, regulations, how it appli
the minimum wage low. minimum wage is $7 for years. before that it was stuck at $5 for years. obama made a commitment to ways -- raise the minimum wage to $9. congress has no interest in raising the minimum wage. you have workers little woman i met 67 years old, diabetes, cancer, heart attack victim, came into the interview on a walker, she hobbled in too poor to retire, works full time at wal-mart outside dallas, non unionized, hearns before taxes about $1,800 a month. does have health insurance through wal-mart but they take options. is encouraged by the company to spend $300 a month buying walmart stock which is useless to her. she will never retire anyway. there buying their stock. i said of what do you eat? she said i am supposed to eat healthy food because i have diabetes but i eat tv dinners from wal-mart and often can't afford it so i go to bed hungry. she was too sixth to take a bus to work and to know how to drive so had to pay her neighbor gas money to drive her to work at walmart. to me that is near poverty. people who according to walmart are doing okay because they're a cou
print for obama care, six, seven years ago, a different bipartisan experience. we will talk to them right after this. my customers can shop around-- see who does good work and compare costs. it doesn't usually work that way with health care. but with unitedhealthcare, i get information on quality rated doctors, treatment options and estimates for how much i'll pay. that helps me, and my guys, make better decisions. i don't like guesses with my business, and definitely not with our health. innovations that work for you. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. i get out a lot... except when it's too cold. like the last three weekends. asthma doesn't affect my job... you missed the meeting again last week! it doesn't affect my family. your coughing woke me up again. i wish you'd take me to the park. i don't use my rescue inhaler a lot... depends on what you mean by a lot. coping with asthma isn't controlling it. test your level of control at, then talk to your doctor. there may be more you could do for your asthma. >> then governor mitt romney, democratic legislators, se
we asked which was delay obama care for a year. i don't think that was an extreme request. given the debacle of the rollout, i think they probably should have heeded us. i think it's going to hurt the democrats and the president but the american people long-term. in terms of what we're willing to do, we are willing to sit sit down and negotiate. i'm one member of congress. i don't think we're likely to be in a government shutdown mode again. it's a question whether we'll have the sequester cuts which neither side wants or reasonable compromise which i think is achievable. >> you can understand from the president's point of view the reason he didn't want the delay for a year. it would have given republicans a greater opportunity to try to repeal obama care overall. >> look, they control the united states senate. the president has got a vote toe and he's going to be in office for three more years plus. so i've never thought repeal was very likely thing. it was an unrealistic goal for those who set it. but the president's in a strong position. now we have passed seven pieces of legi
committee. john, let me start with you. president obama's poll numbers hiing new lows, just over three years -- three years from the end of his run. can he reverse this? >> can he reverse it, christine? >> absolutely. >> can you see a clear path for him to reverse it? no. for a number reasons. you mentioned his personal approval rating is at the lowest point of his presidency. also people are in a lousy mood about washington. some of it's the government shutdown, some of it's the rollout of obama care. the president would need partners to reverse it, to get things done. paul ryan who he's negotiating with, a disciple of jack kemp, he would like to work on some of these economic proposals. a lot of these tea party members come from districts that are struggling. they're behind in the recovery, if you will. so they have common interests, but christine, what they don't have is any common ground. so it's very hard to see any major new economic 234ish tifs in the short term. the president would have to have a big win in the 2014 midterms. anyone can see that happening is reading data that i don't
saying the plans don't meet the new obama care standards. >> the white house knew for years the promise would not be true. >> it was known by the president in july of 2010. >> we'll keep this promise. to the american people. >> now, that's just a sampling of the distortions that we heard this week promoted by our friends at coke brothers-backed americans for prosperity in an attack ad. we heard how they forced insurers to send out the cancelation letters, how millions and millions of americans are being shoved out of their insurance policies, how they'll have to pay astronomical premiums for new coverage and how president obama was part of a conspiracy to deceive the public about health care reform. now, look, there are legitimate questions of what the president said but all the heated rhetoric is just a latest round in the gop's multi-year campaign to sabotage the affordable care act and this white house. quote, the gop faithful kept up their crew said past the president's re-election in a pattern of massive resistance not seen since the southern states' defiance of the supreme court's
the powers of the nsa and edward snowden is now. offering to help germany. >> and president obama shook hands with the leader of iraq for the first time in two years. >> secretary of state john kerry is conceding that some u.s. spying has gone too far. kerry was speaking at a conference in london. he was defending the programs but the white house has concluded that reviews and changes are needed. >> in some cases i acknowledge as does the president some of these actions have reached too far and we are going to make sure that that doesn't happen in the future. >> lawmakers on capitol hill are taking up the spying being a at this times. the senate committee has limited how long the nsa can keep their data record. records. the bill will expand penalties for illegal spying. it falls short from real reform. >> one of the critics is journalist dplejournalist glen . the more information you collect about innocent people the harder it is to actually find the people that actually mean to do you harm. and the metaphor that surveillance officals use they are hooking for a needle in the hay stack. the la

support from the u.s. was the bloodiest month in iraq in more than five years. -- october was the bloodiest month in iraq in more than five years. minister went on a trip to washington. military for u.s. assistance to fight terrorism. obama promised help and said iraq needed to do more for democracy and human rights for all iraqis. >> we are deeply invested in an iraq that is democratic and prosperous. i communicated to the prime minister that anything we can do forring about that future iraq is something we want to work on. >> the prime minister said he was in agreement with the position of the u.s. administration. for iraq and the region to cooperate. we are working on security and intelligence to fight al qaeda because it is good for iraq and the middle east. >> but his trip is not without controversy. outside the white house, iraqis caught on obama to refuse support for the iraqi leader. they say his leadership style is partly to blame for the violence. there is speculation that at&t is considering taking over dafone, which has operations in the middle east, africa, an
. >> speculation of an obama clinton ticket has swirled for years but the white house insists that they are not true. >> what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and had anyone brought that idea to him he would have laughed it out of the room. >> other revelations in the new book suggest that mitt romney eliminated chris christy -- there we go -- from his vp short list because of unanswered questions about his background and health. >> after a successful first day on the slopes, memorial will open today for another day of fun. skiers and snow boarders hit the mountain yesterday. hard to believe. it's the first resort to open in california. they have been making snow around the clock and skiers and snow boarders say they just couldn't be more existed. >> everybody who loves to shred, they will be out here. >> you have to love the shred. the mountain will be open from ten to two. tickets are $20.  they will decide today if they will open tomorrow. not bad. pretty good to ski and snow board on november 2nd. >> already. >> we look fo
in secrecy, and once they are completed, obama wants to rush the agreement through congress, fast-tracking, they call it, with our elected representatives given the choice only of voting it up or down. last year, over 130 members of congress asked the white house for more transparency about what's being negotiated and were essentially told to go fly a kite. you can be sure of this, however. a select group of corporate partners, companies like generax electric, goldman sachs, and pfizer, the pharmaceutical giant, are not likely to be in the dark. players like these stand to be the real beneficiaries of the agreement, because like other so-called "free trade" agreements, tpp actually will reward those at the top, even as it creates rules that will override domestic laws on the environment, workplace safety, and investment. corporate lobbyists already are lining up in washington to ram the agreement through once the white house hurries it out of the delivery room. how do we know this? because some vigilant independent watchdogs are tracking the negotiations with sources they trust, a

's not they are great einsteins, but the weakest season in five years. >> we have a lousy economy. we have a president that wants to raise taxes. obama care, the one thing good for the economy, it's hard to implement. >> what does that have to do with anything? >> we do know for a fact -- >> people can't even sign up for it. >> we do know for a fact that millions of people will lose their individual coverage, and they will have to go out and likely have to buy an insurance policy with a higher premium. and we also do know not just from the retail federation but from morgan stanley, this will be the slowest holiday -- let me finish. you're asking me to do the math, and i'm doing the math for you. >> to contribute it to health care is wrong. >> i know already, not factoring that in, charlie, it's the slowest holiday season in five years. >> but what does that have to do with health care? >>> ben stein hit the nail on the head. there's a malaise. that's the bottom line. there's a malaise, and we know it. this is 1979, 1980 all over again. so it does not help. that's why i said there are a lot of nails in
out paper applications. many haven't been covered in years and are high risk. woe wanted to see how much a sex worker in the bay area, how much they would pay for obama care. they said they make between $30,000 and $40,000 a year. >> under this act, we have hope. >> reporter: we selected the state, average income of the women in this area. >> under the affordable care act -- >> reporter: they will pay $3500 a year, that's about $300 a month. >> i would say three time as year i would try to explore my options and come up empty handed. >> reporter: if they wanted private health care before obama care, plans to cover them were between $400 and $500 a month. now, they will pay $200 a month or less. >> it's so exciting to see that number with a one in front of it. >> reporter: they will get a subsidy. monthly premiums may not be cheaper for everyone. individuals may end up paying more if they don't cover the afortable care act. those who qualify for a subsidy will pay less because the government will front some of the bill. not every taxpayer is going to like the idea of subsidizing the
to us but for the brock obama for military assistance to help by the growing insurgency causing the worst violence in his country in five years. he stated to the white house comes as iraqis are dying at the fastest rate since two thousand and eight during the height of the american occupation of the country cctv chris planning thinking has this report he wrote to prime minister nuri al maliki visited key to the us have a sense of urgency. the iraqi leader on steamy americans the ministry and other assistance. we're in the war he didn't stall but he did delta and us president is now being asked to commit once again to iraq or al qaeda is over it has grown more at least. so. a lot of discussion about how we could work together against the organization that operates the toll in iraq but also posted to the entire region this week. iraqi prime minister of war that iraq isn't helped terrorism will win well because what happens in iraq is not dealt with to expand on what happens in syria. if not dealt with will also expand. what happens in any country with a burst of terrorism lives. t
's despicable, they knew all this before -- well before obama care was implemented. >> bernard, what do you think of that? >> i think it's hysteria gone wild. if 93 million people were about to lose their health insurance in the next two months because of the year end, i think we'd know about it by now. i don't buy this at all. the cost of premiums was rising so dramatically from 11% to 24%. we are finally bending the cost cutters here. and we have seen this year costs for health care going up by the least amount in 50 years. i know as a small business owner, i get my plan dropped all the time. three times out of the last five years when i have go to re-up my plan, it's not been available. i've had to change it and unfortunately to a plan with lower benefits and higher premiums. this is finally going to change this. >> john, is it going to make it better as bernard says? >> no. it's not going to make it better. this fallacy -- and it is another fallacy. have you to understand these guys have spun this magnificent tale. we have been sold a bill of goods. they talk about premiums coming down.
and behavioral health before president obama thought about that. we have our psychiatry services. and our transgenders tuesday's. wee which is about to celebrate 20 years of service this january (clapping) and tom o'dell urban health remains at the forefront as itself services for the transgender community are ignoring both to be another service and we can do it all in the state of the arc facility that's a shining example to all of this city's undying testament for those who are surviving with multiple chronic conditions and poverty and the like. we've been doing it and now we get to do it in style (clapping) >> so - enough from me you'll hear some more thank you's but
in the world, i believe, the photo who has covered the president for years came out against the obama administration saying the control over photographs is so tight that in effect it equals propaganda. they have said in the past five years there have been only two photographs allowed in the oval office of the president. >> yes, santiago lion is the director of photograph for the associated press, basically says he has only been allowed into the oval office two times, which, in historically has not been the case. what they do is release the photos from the white house. so the white house, their own photographer, who, by the way is, a fantastic photographer, not to take anything away from pete sousa who is the official white house photographer, and who has photographed the second reagan administration wells the obama administration. is he a great photographer but it's like basically saying here are the photos we are going to hand out to you the press to put in the newspapers this day. >> it seems like it's propaganda. you want to see things that are authentic and genuine. we don't like
it one year and he said that was enough. >> once is impressive. >> never run it. >>> something else is going on, democrats are fuming over obama care. they're urging the white house to fix the glitches associated with the rollout in time for this year's midterm elections. but could it already be too late? we'll have a fair and balanced debate coming up. >>> and the blame game over the nsa surveillance program. who the agency's chief says is really responsible for all the recent scandals. >>> plus, how the unemployment rate is having a major impact, get this, on our beer industry. ♪ hmm. ♪ mm-hmm.

to obama. and, you know, he's still got time. he needs to escape that, and be the exciting barack obama of a few years ago, otherwise the second term is going to be wasted. >> well, this week, perhaps you even caught it, former chief of staff rahm emanuel defended the president, which he's known him for years, during the interview with jake tapper. listen to what was said. >> there've been criticisms of him as disengaged. do you -- >> that is the furtherest from the truth about the president. i used to see him every morni morning -- i used to see him every morning, three four times during the day, and every evening before we went out. when i saw him every morning, he had read the material presented to him by everybody. >> okay. so he says, you know, he is not one in the dark. he is exactly as you described who he is, hands-on all the time. >> that's right. i don't think the issue is disengagement. the issue is much bigger things for this president. number one, the vision has kind of been lost. and that's what the consultants and the pollsters do to you. they always tell you, don't take
congressional budget office. they say obama care will add 9 million people to the medicaid rolls in the first year costing $21 billion more than we would have spent. by 2023, it will include 13 million more people at a cost of nearly $100 billion more than we would be spending on medicare without it. look at the numbers of the people signing up so far. we talked about it the other day. here are examples. in maryland so far, 96% of folk who is signed up have been on medicaid. in oregon, 100% have been medicaid. washington state, 85% medicaid. kentucky, 80%. all the people signing onto state exchanges are signing up for medicaid, not the exchanges. the part that's supposed to fund everything. >> the administration pointed to the states if they are not enrolling in the exchanges, medicaid under cut it all. it was successful at the state level. they were enrolling in a different program which is medicaid. >> the way the medicaid rolls wanted to get people on who weren't insured. the people who were supposed to the sign up and pay money out of pocket which you don't have to if it's medicaid. >> th
-- that's the thing, for obama to say that i had no idea about the strategic nsa program after years of being in charge that defies belief. the president will not have the day-to-day information. to say he is not briefed in on these 30,000-foot programs forget about it. and then for the senator to say she had no idea, either they are twisting the reality for political purposes and that's what i believe they are doing or they are the world's most incurious, uninquiz tiff and uninterested people. >> can it be both? >> it could certainly be both. >> isn't that the commander-in-chief playbook though? it is the iran contra playbook a lot of i don't knows and this person did that and this person did this. >> that is absolutely true. there is always going to be an element of deny and lack of understanding. that's the understanding. and then you get back to business. what i am saying is is it strange for a white house that has seemed to be politically savy, it is a strange route to take and to say i don't know about this. and particularly knowing there will be continued revelations from the
to the president's agenda. today, the court overturned an obama care provision mandating businesses cover their employees' birth control. this year, it invalidated the president's national labor relations board appointments, making the body nonfunctional. last year, it struck down epa rules on air pollution. all of that from this one court. now, republicans filibustering a nominee isn't new. what is new and dangerous is the reason. you see, the d.c. appellate court has 11 seats, three of those seats are now vacant. and the judges who are there reliablely deliver conservative rulings. if the president could appoint one judge, it would tip the court's balance. if he could fill all three vacancies, it would transform the court and all of american justice. but republicans are now saying that democrats can appoint no one to fill those vacancievacan. in fact, they are now saying that appointing people to fill vacancies is, get this, court packing. >> this court is not one that needs more judges. as he's trying to pack the court in order to affect the outcomes. >> packing the court because it ha
